Snowdonia Marathon 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 00:48

Thanks for all this goodwill, everybody. I'm not the first to do this achievement, even on this thread!

I suppose it's more the manner in which I've reached 100 which includes 47 ultras (between 30-100 miles), often with varying degrees of hardship or misadventure attached.  I'm trying to collate all the stories I've written and posted in various places with a view to getting some sort of manuscript together that someone might be interested to publish.

I'll get this report done soon.

Well, there's John Cunnane who just posted on the previous page ...  (Someone I know and probably one of the nuttier people posting on this thread at the current time - and that's saying something!) 

Glad to hear you're keeping up the 'shorter' events, John. Will you be doing the Taith Torfaen event in April, or perhaps marshalling instead?

You can just about make out the 100 marathon club vest that I was presented with and buff in the photo, but it's not all that clear.

Hi John C.  Sorry you can't make SNOD.  I'm sure there will be a last-minute taker coming along.  Have you done any epic runs/walks lately?


Thanks for good wishes.  Leaving shortly with full wet weather gear.

Thanks, Geeem.  Still can't seem to open the maps.  I'll try again in a few days.

Managed another 6-8 miles' bimble in the Brecon Beacons on Tuesday, including Fan Brycheiniog, 802m. Very hot and sunny again, with the mountains looking their best.

Not such great weather for Race to the Castle on Saturday.  Might be the first ultra I will have done in heavy rain throughout.  I've always liked to think I can carry on as normal so will have to see.

wannabe ultra runner?

Yes, get her to run the last 20K with you.  It will be a great morale boost and will spur you on to the finish.

Your last long run should be this weekend and then begin tapering.

I've got Race to the Castle ultra on Saturday (42 miles).  With achilles tendonitis in both feet and a wet day in prospect it's going to be tough.

Then got 10Peaks Brecon Beacons 55 on 5 Sep and Black Mountains 40-ish on 12 Sep.

It all seemed to make sense when I booked these things but now looks to be lunacy!

Hopefully the organiser will discover the problem when he tries to set up the control point!

Good luck with it, ian.
